Free Composting Class

From Austin Resource Recovery –

Join us at the Fermentation Festival and become a all-star composter and part the Austin Home Composting Community!

Register today for a FREE class about Home Composting presented by the City of Austin

This class is part of the City of Austin’s Home Composting Rebate Program. Austin residents who pay the Clean Community Fee on their utility bill qualify for a $75 rebate on any home (and apartment) composting system which includes backyard composters, digesters, and vermi-composting systems. Simply attend a composting class, then apply!

Composting is nature’s way of recycling. Rather than sending your food scraps and lawn clippings to the landfill, you can turn them into a nutrient-rich fertilizer for your plants, garden, or lawn by using a home composting system. Register to attend this free composting class and learn how!

The Austin Fermentation Festival is a free educational event that celebrates all things fermented in Central Texas and will run from 11am – 4pm at the Austin Central Library and Seaholm EcoDistrict lawn. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Texas Farmers’ Market Ag Producer Support Fund, which offers financial assistance to Texas Farmers Market farmers and ranchers in times of environmental, personal, or other crisis.
